Sewall-Belmont House and Museum
The museum is the headquarters of the historic National Woman's Party and was the Washington home of its founder and Equal Rights Amendment author Alice Paul.
Sewall-Belmont, named in the first Save America's Treasures legislation, is the only museum in the nation's capital dedicated to preserving and showcasing a crucial piece of our history—the fight for the American woman's right to vote. This struggle is documented through one of the most significant collections in the country focused on the suffrage and equal rights movements.
Alice Paul, founder of the National Woman's Party, dedicated her life to securing equal rights for women. The political strategies and techniques of Alice Paul and the NWP became the blueprint for civil rights organizations during the twentieth century. Paul is known internationally as a humanitarian; she was a great revolutionary and pioneer in the fight for women's equal rights.
